The comparison I’ve always used is: Imagine if driver’s education was just the internal combustion engine and how it works. It didn’t cover steering, brakes, red octagons at the end of the street, what a yellow light means. If that were driver’s ed, the first time somebody got in a car, the odds that they were going to hurt themselves or someone else would be high. Our sex education is basically the reproductive internal combustion engine. It doesn’t talk about steering, brakes, red octagons, yellow lights. It doesn’t talk about anything where it gets complicated, which is usually where people get hurt.
